Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Immune system

His primary areas of study are cDNA library, Salivary gland, Molecular biology, Sialome and Immunology. His cDNA library research incorporates themes from Ixodes scapularis, Transcriptome and Proteomics. Salivary gland is often connected to Leishmania in his work.

His work carried out in the field of Molecular biology brings together such families of science as Recombinant DNA, Thromboplastin, Tissue factor pathway inhibitor, Complementary DNA and Peptide sequence. His Immunology research focuses on subjects like Saliva, which are linked to Zoology. His Visceral leishmaniasis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Antigen and Virology.

His most cited work include:

  • Development of a Natural Model of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis: Powerful Effects of Vector Saliva and Saliva Preexposure on the Long-Term Outcome of Leishmania major Infection in the Mouse Ear Dermis (381 citations)
  • Toward a Defined Anti-Leishmania Vaccine Targeting Vector Antigens: Characterization of a Protective Salivary Protein (333 citations)
  • An annotated catalog of salivary gland transcripts from Ixodes scapularis ticks. (301 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Immunology, Saliva, Virology, Leishmania and Salivary gland. His Saliva research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Tick and Microbiology. His Virology research incorporates elements of Visceral leishmaniasis, Leishmaniasis, Cutaneous leishmaniasis and Antigen.

He works mostly in the field of Leishmania, limiting it down to concerns involving Vector and, occasionally, Phlebotomus and Zoology. Jesus G. Valenzuela interconnects Molecular biology, Apyrase and Genetics in the investigation of issues within Salivary gland. His work in Molecular biology covers topics such as Biochemistry which are related to areas like Alternative complement pathway.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (34.22%)
  • Saliva (30.22%)
  • Virology (30.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Immunology (34.22%)
  • Saliva (30.22%)
  • Vector (21.78%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Jesus G. Valenzuela focuses on Immunology, Saliva, Vector, Leishmania and Virology. His research investigates the connection with Immunology and areas like Disease which intersect with concerns in Blood sucking and Blood feeding. The concepts of his Saliva study are interwoven with issues in Recombinant DNA, Complement system, Microbiology, Chemokine and Salivary gland.

His research on Leishmania frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Leishmaniasis. His work in the fields of Leishmaniasis, such as Visceral leishmaniasis and Cutaneous leishmaniasis, intersects with other areas such as Context. His research in Virology intersects with topics in Leishmaniasis Vaccines and Immunogenicity.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Gut Microbes Egested during Bites of Infected Sand Flies Augment Severity of Leishmaniasis via Inflammasome-Derived IL-1β (78 citations)
  • The Gut Microbiome of the Vector Lutzomyia longipalpis Is Essential for Survival of Leishmania infantum (70 citations)
  • Leishmania vaccine development: exploiting the host–vector–parasite interface (43 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Immune system

Jesus G. Valenzuela spends much of his time researching Immunology, Virology, Visceral leishmaniasis, Leishmaniasis and Immune system. The Virology study combines topics in areas such as Vector, Leishmaniasis Vaccines and Antigen. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Autoantibody, Pemphigus foliaceus, Antibody, Immunity and Pemphigus.

His work carried out in the field of Leishmaniasis brings together such families of science as Saliva, Microbiology and Leishmania. His Immune system research incorporates elements of Ixodes scapularis, Borrelia burgdorferi, Arthropod mouthparts and Vaccination. As a part of the same scientific family, Jesus G. Valenzuela mostly works in the field of Psychodidae, focusing on Salivary gland and, on occasion, Zoology.
